Administering and Scoring End-of-Unit Assessments & Portfolio Problems

This article will cover how to administer and score Learnosity End-of-Unit Assessments and Portfolio Problems:

How do I administer a Learnosity End-of-Unit Assessment?

IM (Illustrative Mathematics) courses in the base curriculum include Learnosity End-of-Unit Assessments that students can complete online.

To begin administering the assessment:

  1. Navigate to your Math Unit.
  2. Select the Overview or Plans tab.
  3. Find your End-of-Unit Assessment. This is indicated by a star icon ★ and the name "End-of-Unit Assessment". Note that Portfolio Problems are also indicated by a star icon.
  4. Click Manage Assessment.

  5. Select which students should start the assessment. Click Select All to select all students. Note that you can omit certain students from the assessment if they are not present in class. 

  6. You can change the Assessment Duration to match your class period. Click the + or - buttons to add or subtract time.
  7. When Assessment Mode is highlighted in blue, Assessment Mode is enabled. Please refer to this help article about setting up Assessment Mode at your school.
  8. When Calculator is highlighted in blue, the calculator in enabled. Note: If only a select group of students should have access to the calculator, you'll need to start twice-- once for the group that will use the calculator and a second time for the group without the calculator.
  9. Click Start to begin the assessment. Once the teacher clicks Start, the Assessment Duration will begin to count down for all selected students.

How do I score a Learnosity End-of-Unit Assessment?

To score a Learnosity End-of-Unit Assessment:

  1. From the Math Unit page, click the Feedback tab.
  2. Select the End-of-Unit Assessment (indicated by a star) from the lefthand side.
  3. Click on a student’s name to begin scoring their End-of-Unit Assessment. You will see their Learnosity Assessment results in the center of the page, and the question by question scores along the right. Teacher scored questions will be indicated by Needs Scoring.                             

  4. Teachers can adjust the scores for any question. To enter scores for a question, click the pencil icon and enter a number between 0 and 1. You can give partial credit by adding a decimal (such as 0.5).
  5. Please note that students will see their overall score as well as the questions and answers to the assessment once you click Score. We recommend that you enter scores (as described in steps 3 and 4) for each student and only click Score once you are ready for all students to see the assessment results.


  6. To enter the bulk scoring view, click the student switcher at the top of the page and select All Students. 


  7. Select Score Final Products in the upper right. This will allow you to submit Scores for an entire class at once.
  8. If you update a Score, you will see the new score under the Final Score column, and the original Learnosity score under the Original Learnosity Score column in the Bulk Scoring view. Your student will also see their Original Learnosity Score crossed out, as well as their updated score, when they view their assessment.


  9.  Once scores have been submitted for students, you will be able to see a breakdown of how your students did on their assessment on the Feedback tab.  



What does it mean to expire or reset a Learnosity End-of-Unit Assessment? 

Once you have started a Learnosity End-of-Unit Assessment, you will be able to Expire or Reset assessments for Working students.

Expire will close the assessment for student(s) while preserving their answer choices. You may want to Expire an assessment if the class period ends and the assessment still has time remaining. Once you expire an assessment, you'll have the option to Force Submit or Extend Time.

Reset will return students to the Not Started state and clear all of their answers. You may want to Reset the assessment if there is an interruption (such as a fire drill) and you will need to start the assessment again from the beginning at another time.

To Expire or Reset an assessment:

  1. Click Manage Assessment.
  2. Select the Working tab to focus on students currently taking the assessment.
  3. Select the students whose assessments you'd like to Expire or Reset.
  4. Select Expire or Reset.

  5. Click Save to save your changes.

To Force Submit an expired assessment:

  1. Click Manage Assessment.
  2. Select the Expired tab.
  3. Select the students whose assessments you'd like to Force Submit.
  4. Select Force Submit.
  5. Click Save.

To extend time for an Expired Assessment:

  1. Click Manage Assessment.
  2. Select the Expired tab.
  3. Select the students whose time you'd like to extend.
  4. Select Extend Time. Click the + or - buttons to add or subtract time.
  5. Click Save. 

How do I extend or reset the time on an assessment? 

Once a student is working on an assessment, has submitted the assessment, or their assessment time has expired, you’ll have the option to extend and reset their assessment.

Extending an assessment gives additional time for students to work on the assessment without losing their original answers. Resetting an assessment gives students the opportunity to restart their assessment from the beginning, restarting the originally allotted time and erasing all answers they’ve previously submitted. 

To Extend or Reset a Learnosity assessment: 

  1. Click Manage Assessment.
  2. Click your desired tab. 
  3. Select students whose assessments you’d like to Extend or Reset. 
  4. Select Extend or Reset. 
  5. Click the + or - buttons to add or subtract time. 
  6. Click Save.



How do I exempt a student from an End-of-Unit Assessment?

If for some reason you need to exempt a student from an End-of-Unit Assessment, you can do so from the Bulk Scoring view. 

To get to the Bulk Scoring view: 

1. Click into an assigned Math Unit.
2. Click into the End-of-Unit Assessment. 
3. From the right side of the page, click Bulk Scoring.


 Exempt this student from Final Product

  • Exempts a single student from the End-of-Unit Assessment

Exempt only working students from Final Product

  • Exempts students with “Working” status from the End-of-Unit Assessment. Students who are “Working” have not submitted nor been scored on the End-of-Unit Assessment. 

Exempt all students from Final Product

  • Exempts all students from the End-of-Unit Assessment, regardless of status.

How do I score printed End-of-Unit Assessments?

  1. From the Math Unit page, click the Feedback tab.
  2. Select the End-of-Unit Assessment from the lefthand side (indicated by a star).
  3. From the right side of the page, click Bulk Scoring.

  4. Enter a score for the student. Note that scores must be ≥ 60%. For more information on scoring in Math Units, please visit this help article
  5. Click Score.

How do I give students scores on Portfolio Problems?

Portfolio Problems are puzzling, complex, often application-based problems that accompany each Math Unit. Portfolio Problems are indicated by a star on the Overview and Plans pages. Please note that Portfolio Problems are not yet available in 4th or 5th grade Math Units. Read more about our Math Curriculum in our Math FAQs.

To score students on Portfolio Problems:

  1. From the Math Units page, click the Feedback tab
  2. Select the Portfolio Problem (indicated by a star) from the lefthand side.
  3. Click on a student’s name to begin scoring the Portfolio Problem. The Portfolio Problem rubric will be listed on the right.
  4. Click on a rubric level to assign a score. Click here to learn more about Portfolio Problem grading.
  5. Click Score.
  6. If multiple students have submitted their Portfolio Problems, you'll be transitioned to the next pending student as soon as you click Score.
  7. Click the <- arrow in the upper left corner to return to the Project page.

How should I use the version 2 of End-of-Unit Assessments?

Most End-of-Unit Assessments in Math Units do not lend themselves well to revision due to the closed nature of many of the questions we use to elicit evidence of conceptual understanding. Inevitably, some students will want to improve their scores. The second versions of End-of-Unit Assessments provide that opportunity. They can be used in a variety of ways, such as offering them to interested students after school hours or building them into class time. If students attempt version 2 and their concept rubric scores improve, replace the lower scores with higher scores in the Summit Learning Platform.
